I saw this in a double spread advert in The Standard tonight, no more info than that. Bob be heaven as he admitted he is a big Jim Steinman fan.

Surprised Princeton, you do not have more info, your the man on the pulse, so if you don't know, no one else will, Baz will have something in the morning.

I think this one will be a London gig, as the producers have paid a lot of money for a double page spread in The Evening Standard (London paper), so for the producers to pay that much money for a advert with no real info on it, a announcement has to be imminent.

The only London houses, I could see this going into would be the Prince Edward,Piccadilly or maybe Sadler Wells? But I do not see this going into a theatre as the houses I mention, do not look like they are going to give up on there tenants, I have a hunch they probably do a spectacular at the Royal Albert Hall or 02?

Yes, Phantom I am indeed a big Jim Steinman fan - love his music and his lyrics. If were to write a musical with a new score, I'd be delighted. But yet another Juke Box show (even with the fantastic songs from Bat Out Of Hell), I can do without.

Remember Bob, saying on the Whistle Down the Wind thread, how much you love Jim Steinman, take it being a regular New York visitor, ou might of seen Dance with the Vampires?

I agree with you on jukebox/tribute musicals, too many of them around and they have been one to death, currently 5 playing London at the moment, 13 original musicals playing!

Phantom - afraid I didn't get to see DOTV. It was back when I still had a dog and didn't get away as frequently as I do now - and the show didn't last too long LOL

The article says about building a special venue, this is no theatre event, this is more stadium status

I guess this show still fits in with the genre of musical theatre, albeit very loosely.

Just heard they want the Shaftesbury for a Summer opening...I thought Hairspray had more life in it...The only other theatre this could work in is the Dominion.

Sorry I didnt mean that it should be talked about on here, just that it seems from the article that they are going BIG scale.

Anythinggoes, that then contradicts the article that mentions special stadiums etc.

Time will tell I guess.

The show wants a sit down production in the West End. Its been mooting around for about a year - but its been very quite on any front since about 9 months ago. I had no idea things had progressed.

Well, 8 years later, Bat Out of Hell did hit the stage.  Some enthusiastic responses - but the West End sit down at the Dominion is coming to a close after less than a year. Closing 5 January 2019.  I had a blast and hope to see the US tour.

They are advertising it as "End of Season". Isthere a chance they bring it back in 2019 in another theater? Anyone have any idea what is moving into the Dominion?

I know there were issues with the US tour, but perhaps they will still tour later in 2019 with the original cast. It seems they have a block of dates in NY Summer of 2019.
